HSBC picks John Flint as new chief executive
London: HSBC has chosen John Flint as its next chief executive, with its newly arrived chairman promoting an insider to drive revenue growth at Europe’s biggest bank. Flint, who runs HSBC’S retail and wealth management business out of London, will take over as CEO in February next year when Stuart Gulliver, 58, retires after seven years in the job.
The appointment is the first major decision taken by former AIA Group chief Mark Tucker, who officially took up his post at HSBC just 12 days ago as its first externally-appointed chairman. REUTERS
